Submission of SA films invited for 2018 best foreign film Oscar

The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), an agency of the Department of Arts and Culture, is extending a call to all South African producers to submit their films for entry into the 90th Annual Academy Awards (Oscars). The Academy has opened a call for entry for Best Foreign Language Film Award, inviting South Africans to submit their feature films for consideration.

The closing date for submissions is the 15th September 2017. The South African Academy Selection Committee will choose one film as the country’s official submission for the Foreign Language Film Award. A foreign language film is defined as a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States of America with a predominantly non-English dialogue track.

Further eligibility and submission details detail, amongst others, dates during which the film must have been commercially screened, dominant language, acceptable technical formats, and other criteria.
